"The advent of information and communications technology has led to global spread of information by citizens. Currently, many initiatives for political action are emerging on the internet, ranging from generation of public opinion outside the traditional media to software projects which purpose is to process public data proposing simultaneously its openness.
The actors involved in these initiatives use organizations that do not necessarily correspond to the ones traditionally formalized (political parties, unions, associations). This paper examines the agents involved in this type of activities and their actions, describes "open data" principles and proposes a basic information structure that can be taken into account by all initiatives to facilitate future exchanges of information and coordination between them."
